This is an old surname of shipbuilders in Korcula. The caulkers with this surname were on board under the Dubrovnik flag: Rado in 1760, and Rafo in the same year, but this last one was mentioned as Bonguardi. The surname was changed later to Bonguardo (PZR 10). The shipbuilder Jakov Bonvardo, while estimating the damage of the wood cutting in the area of Cara and Smokvica in the ownership of brothers Giunio from Korcula in 1765, declared that the pine-trees in this area were of excellent quality, height, and thickness unlike those in other parts of the island.
Master Frano Bonvardo Jakovljev was mentioned in 1803. The census of 1810 mentioned the following shipbuilders of the name Bonvardo: five in Borak - Antun (20 years old), Matij (28), Pavao (16), Matij of the late Frano (25) and Jakov of the late Frano (Kire) (23), who was then absent, and two in Sv. Nikola: Dominik of the late Vincenco (68) and Antun of the late Rafo (Mantijola) (43). Vinko Bonvardo built a boat for Petar Divovic in 1807 and transported it to Dubrovnik. He had good relations with Dubrovnik so that we find him in the same year as co-owner of the Dubrovnik "brigantino" "La societa fedele". He was a member of the refuge for the poor and needy in Korcula in 1812 during French rule, and in 1813, during English rule, he was a member of the commission investigating the unlawful cutting of wood in Blato. He was very much a respected citizen.
